Nicaragua May 13 - 21/2017, SR1310

Opportunity Overview

This trip is closed. Check out our June and July trips!

This is a family trip! Come join us as we serve the people of Nicaragua!

Nicaragua is the Central American country with the greatest challenges in terms of spiritual, economic and health concerns. From 1936 to 1979, Nicaragua lived under the dictator known as Somoza. In 1979 there arose the Sandinista Revolution, which overthrew Somoza's dictatorship. Unfortunately, this evolved into yet another dictatorship, and brought about the civil war that so deteriorated and destroyed the land and people of Nicaragua for the next ten years. Democracy did not arrive in Nicaragua until 1990, when the first free elections were held. Nicaragua has enjoyed peace and democracy for the past 16 years, but still suffers the effects of years of war in that they are desperately poor and in need of medical assistance.

The team will be serving in the village of Los Altos De Segovia, in northern Nicaragua near the Honduras border.
